Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I hadn't thought about the NRA being brought up on RICO charges, but that would be icing on the cake. The end of the NRA and the GOP as we know them at the same time. One couldn't hope for a better outcome. Be careful what you wish for. Too much power on one side of the ideological scale is not nec...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Best Actor

No other film or TV show, not even Law & Order , shows the legal system the way it works now in the U.S. Plea bargaining is the name of the game. It doesn't matter if you're guilty or innocent. Admit to a lesser crime to avoid the possibility of losing big time. I was recently involved in such ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Actually, I misspoke. criddic3, I want you to hear me out... You say: criddic3 wrote There are still plenty of Republicans, both in office and in the rank & file, who are vocally opposed to President Trump. Fighting from within is the only good option short of splitting the party in two. 1) Who...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

Yeah, not sure I would compare this to Joseph McCarthyism. At least, not yet. But I would be troubled if they took away someone's nomination based only on an accusation, before the person can defend him/herself in a court of law. That would be a bad precedent and send an awful message.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Visual Effects

2. Maybe Production Design, but there's no way you can seriously say "E.T." didn't deserve it's Oscar for Visual Effects. At the time, everyone I knew thought 1) E.T. was a wonderful movie, 2) it was sure to win for visual effects, but 3) apart from the flying bicycles, its special effect...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I don't think it's too late to separate from Trump and if I were in office I would do my best to save the party. How delightfully fantasy-like. In the real world, this is not the case at all. Trump and the entire GOP are one in the same now. Where have you been? There are still plenty of Republican...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Visual Effects

The nominees: I agree, John C. Reilly’s character was an especially bad element.) Because Blade Runner 2049 ... but you can also throw in the fact that the original film is now widely thought to have been robbed in the visual effects and production design categories). 1. I actually liked Reilly's p...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Wonder what Fox news is covering right now... I don't even get Fox on my cable package anymore, but I do get some stuff in my Facebook newsfeed. There's an hilarious recent moment that MSNBC's Joe Scarborough picked up on when Sean Hannity tried to defend President Trump on the reports he had order...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

I don't know if it has been mentioned before, but does anyone think that Abacus: Small Enough to Jail could win the documentary prize partly based on the fact that it is Steve James' first nod? After being shockingly left off the list in 1994 for Hoop Dreams and in 2014 for Life Itself , it seems pl...

Re: Which Nominees Have You Seen?

My list of films I need to see is very long (although I just got a bunch of Spirit Awards screeners that will help), but I've actually seen all 5 documentary nominees already! What did you think of them? I've only seen the Abacus & Faces, Places. If Strong Island happens to turn up locally I'll...
